B.P.R.D. Garden of Souls #4 of 5
Abe Sapien, Captain Benjamin Daimio, Liz Sherman, Dr. Kate Corrigan, Johann Kraus
Overview

The mummy told Abe she was initially part of London’s society but was then sheltered by the Heliopic Brotherhood.  She worked with their experiments but felt isolated and decided to leave.  She used her psychic abilities to put them all to sleep while she escaped on a freighter to America.  The Dannes Society helped her but they lied.  They took her captive on a tropical island.  Now they are keeping her controlled by burning opiates in her room.

Abe learns she used the little retarded girl to write to Abe in Colorado to bring him to her.  She acknowledged that with her state of deterioration she can’t participate in the world but she will not let them “end it.”

The police were about to take Lastri, the little retarded girl home, when the mummy started talking through Lastri saying she will explain everything to Captain Daimio.

Edward and the robots explained to Abe that the three perfect bodies they created for themselves will be spiritual reservoirs for all the humans they will kill.  Their plan is to create giant earthquakes throughout the Pacific Rim with these massive machines.  The earthquakes will cause tidal waves and millions will die simultaneously.  At that precise moment they will guide the souls into the three perfect bodies and house their spirits.  These souls will power the “engines of domination over the next great age.”  The rest of humanity will die but these souls will continue inside the three men.  Each of the three men will be a living nation of man.

They tried to tell Abe they were his friends even though they turned him into a fishman.  Abe took his old cane and broke the containment system for one of the bodies.

Edward told Abe he was dead before dusk.

Lastri told Captain Daimio they had to get a bomb squad here ASAP and he was going to have to arrange for the other sites in Sakhalin, Taipei, Shanghai . . .

As Lastri, AKA, the mummy was giving Daimio instructions; Edward attacked the mummy and Lastri’s communication was interrupted.

Abe tried to escape to his boat but it had been wrecked by many of the monsters the mad scientists had created.

Ensner analogized to Abe that most of their monsters were docile but some were not docile, case in point:  like Abe.

Ensner tries to kill Abe but Abe has other ideas.
